    Justifiable Homicide Walker County, GA

    Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said evidence points to self-defense in a fatal shoot-ing Monday night on Lookout Mountain.

    The shooting left one man dead and another in custody.

    According to Wilson, the shooter was protecting three women who were being assaulted.

    “The evidence strongly supported that the homicide was justified,” Wilson said.

    Brian Lee Walden, 35, of 135 Walden Lane, Rising Fawn, was taken into custody at the scene, held and questioned at the Walker County jail. He released Tuesday morning upon the advice of district attorney Herbert “Buzz” Franklin.

    The deceased is Harry Lee “Chuck” Derryberry, 45, of 36 Durham Road, Rising Fawn. An autopsy will be performed at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab in Atlanta.

    According to reports, the two men and three women were engaged in a domestic assault shortly before the 7:30 p.m. fatal shot was fired from a 12-gauge shotgun.

    The shooting happened in a field between Durham and Walden roads on Lookout Moun-tain.

    According to Wilson, witnesses said Derryberry was assaulting a 62-year-old woman and two other women and was said to be possibly intoxicated. When Walden approached Derry-berry, Derryberry became threatening with Walden.

    Wilson said no charges have been placed against Walden, but the case could go before a grand jury.

    Not very forth coming on the local Chattanooga News Channels. Just a brief mention and that he was taken into custody. Did not get to watch last night - maybe they will or have reported he was released.

    I like how they give out the name and address of the shooter. Do these journalists have any common sense?

    At least they referred to Mr. Derryberry as the 'deceased' instead of the 'victim'.
